But, before the gecko entry, I also have:

MozPlugger 1.12.1 handles QuickTime and Windows Media Player Plugin

    File name: nswrapper_64_64.mozplugger.so
    MozPlugger version 1.12.1, written by Fredrik Hübinette, Louis
Bavoil and Peter Leese.
    For documentation on how to configure mozplugger, check the man
page. (type man mozplugger)

I already tried choosing other options than Mozplugger in Preferences
Applications and it. I just disabled MozPlugger and I'll see what
happens tomorrow.
